Mentruation


Menstruation,
Yes.
I use the word in public,
Yes.
It means to bleed,
Yes.
To bleed every month.

Do that make them impure?
No.
Do they suffer from any curse?
No.
Is this it sign of weakness?
No.

She suffers from utmost pain,
Still does all her work.
A natural phenomenon,
Still needs to carry a black poly bag.
White is the colour of peace,
Still, she can't wear white.

Thanks to our judicial system.
Condoms are tax-free
but have to pay taxes on pads.
You can have tax free sex
but you cannot bleed
Without paying taxes.
